Volvo XC40 Recharge (2020) At A Glance

+Electric XC40 with 249-mile range.

-Priced from £53,155.

The electric Volvo XC40 Recharge has a range of 249 miles and starts at £53,155.

With two electric motors, the four-wheel-drive XC40 will have a total output of 408PS and 660Nm of torque. Power comes from a 78kWh battery located beneath the car's floor and capable of being charged to 80 per cent in around 40 minutes.

The electric XC40 will cover 0-62mph in 4.9 seconds, says Volvo, while top speed is limited to 112mph.

Inside, the XC40 Recharge will have a cabin broadly the same as the standard car - aside from a new Android-powered infotainment system.

The electric XC40 offers 413 litres of boot space, which is less than the 460 litres of the regular model. Although, due to the space saved by the absence of an engine, it gains a 31-litre ‘frunk’ storage area underneath the bonnet.

What hybrid should I replace my Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV with?
"I have a 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. I have been happy with it, with the exception of the battery mileage - which dropped from 30 to 24miles within 2 years. I would like another hybrid. What would you recommend?"
The plug-in hybrid market has grown considerably since you bought your Outlander, so there are quite a few good replacements available. We'd recommend the Peugeot 3008 Hybrid or the new Toyota RAV4 Plug-in. You could consider upmarket alternatives like the Volvo XC40 Recharge PHEV, too.
